Can a slider concept use modular buildings to get big?
This week’s episode of the Restaurant Business podcast “A Deeper Dive” features Maria Rivera, the CEO of the rapidly growing slider chain, to talk about its unique method of growth.
Smalls is a rapidly growing quick-service slider chain. The company has been quickly adding locations throughout the South over the past year, using its “cans,” or 750-square-foot facilities that are manufactured off site and placed onto the restaurant site.
Maria calls them “cans.” And she talks extensively about the potential benefits these units can have on franchisees’ ability to open locations more quickly and more strategically, along with potential financial benefits.
We talk about the chain’s history and the simplicity of its menu—customers order sliders, fries, drinks and shakes. We talk about the company’s franchising strategy and its plans for growth.
It’s an interesting conversation with the CEO of a fast-growing slider chain so please have a listen.
